Another week, another dollar.  Or maybe another dollar.  With all the craziness going on out there, it’s never certain what’s going to happen around the corner.  Which is why it’s nice to know that I have been able to tuck some money aside in case of a rainy day.  Of course, I have the money set aside for my daughter and me to make a trip to Walt Disney World.  And I suppose I can go back to planning such…
